With Christine Williams
Share in a session focussed on producing your own personal journal or a memoir narrative celebrating your very own take on life.

Each of us has an original view of the world and a special period in life we want to record for posterity.

Capture a memory or create a journal of travel, parenting, as a garden diary, or for other family events – your unique record of a time to remember.

We explore ideas about:

  • Developing an ‘observer’ role
  • Prompting memory & presenting text in an engaging form
  • Understanding copyright, intellectual property and plagiarism
  • Blogging – the fun, the fortune and the fame.

Come and enjoy extracts from the journals & memoirs of literary figures and popular celebrities.
Keeping a journal is for you.

When: Sundays or Mondays, 1-5 pm

Fee: $85
